"Shows aromas of very ripe fruit and sweet tobacco, with hints of earth and spices. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with round, velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Likeable for its soft texture. Best after 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.." (WS)

"The 2007 Croft Vintage has a soft, fig and date-scented bouquet that opens up beautifully in the glass, warm and inviting. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, supple tannin, a fine line of acidity and a ripe finish with dark cherries, boysenberry jam and a citric edge lending poise and delineation. There is a nice hint of fieriness on the finish that gives it a little hubris and brio, though not excessively, since that would not be in keeping with Croft’s style." (WA)

"($90) Full, bright deep ruby. Black fruits, cranberry, leather and spices, complicated by pepper and herbs and a hint of raisined fruits. Very sweet and pliant in the mouth, with black cherry and licorice flavors joined by a lightly herbal quality. Juicy, energetic wine with very good length and depth. Not really expansive yet, but it's hard to imagine this as a long-term ager. (My second bottle showed some more advanced nutty aromas and only moderate density, and finished with dusty tannins, meriting 87 points.)" (IWC)

"With its dry, dark side, this wine offers firm tannins to go with the somewhat austere structure. Of course there is sweetness here and an attractive perfumed violet aroma, but the texture dominates." (WE)
